Another reason to love Robert de Niro…

He does tai chi!  Ok, so it was for a film but he’s looking good.  Love the focus in his eyes, looking “upright, comfortable and relaxed” as my teacher also tells me to be. Anne Hathaway’s looking less so, but it’s probably part of her role?  Anyone know what film this is from?

I’m wondering if either of them fancy some more tai chi practise this autumn and would join us on our 11th WoW Week of Wellness in Mallorca – tai chi, walks, holistic therapies, sunshine, pool time, downtime, in stunning countryside.  A few spaces remain…

 

Week of Wellness (10/10/15) earlybird DISCOUNT extended to end of Feb.

P1150784If you’re anything like me, your mind during the second half of January will have been full of invoices, receipts, diaries, creditors, travel claims and so forth, ie. completing and submitting your tax return.  Only now might you be able to see the possibilities beyond the 31st January and start to give the better things in life some attention, like chilling in the pool with the sun on your skin!

And so with this in mind, we’re extending our earlybird discount for our WoW Week of Wellness through to the end of February, giving you a whole month to get your holiday plans in order, and book to join us for a treat of week of tai chi, holistic therapies, walks, chillout time, being mindful, good food and wine, laughter, lazing by the pool, exploring the local area and generally feeling fabulous by the end of it!

We’ve only 3 ensuite rooms left at the wonderful Son Ametler.  Bring a friend and share the fun, save on the price.  And with the earlybird discount extended til the end of February, each person saves £50 off the fee.

Check it out today and contact us with any questions.

goldsworthygrass2Make time in the foothills of Mallorca’s Traumontana mountain with a winning combination of a tai chi, reflexology and walks – a full week or a short break chillout, 5-12th October  2013.

Several years ago I went on one of those “Superworking” courses for managers – how to be more efficient, more effective, get more done in less time, and so forth. There were many interesting, and some wacky, concepts, exercises and ideas put before us. One story really stuck with me, I’m paraphasing but hopefully you get the gist. It goes something like this:

“A woodman has 20 trees he needs to cut down in the shortest time possible. He has one axe. After he’s cut down 10 trees his axe is blunt. He needs to keep cutting down trees but the tools he has no longer do the job. The woodman believes he hasn’t got time to stop and take a few minutes out to resharpen his axe.  He keeps chopping at the trees with the blunt axe, making very slow progress, getting blisters and aching muscles, but in his mind he is still heading towards his goal.  In a neighbouring wood a friend has the same task.  When his axe blade is blunt, he stops and takes but a few minutes to sharpen his blade, and so completes his task in a much shorter time, less tired, fewer blisters”.

Which approach do you take to life?  In our busy “goal orientated” world we often don’t make the time or take the time to resharpen our axe, to recharge our batteries, to eat, drink and play mindfully.  And actually when we do, we usually find we have far more energy and creativity to face our next woodcutter challenge.

So if you didn’t manage to get away over the summer, or even if you did and need a sunny boost before the winter kicks in, make time and space for yourself with us in Mallorca, you won’t regret it.  Find out more including prices, last few rooms available.  All inclusive, you only have to book your place and book your flight. Axe sharpened, sorted.
